Deron Williams (wrist) out Wednesday against Bucks

By Royce Young | NBA writer

The Brooklyn Nets have been sliding as of late and it appeared a trip to Milwaukee could help get them back on track.

But they'll have to do it without point guard Deron Williams, who has been ruled out with a bruised right wrist.

Without Williams, the Nets will likely start backup C.J. Watson. Rookie Tyshawn Taylor could see minutes as well.

The Bucks are quietly 14-12 and the Nets could be in for a long night without Williams. The Nets have won just three of their last 12, falling to a disappointing 14-13.

Williams, 28, is averaging 16.6 points and 8.0 assists per game this season.
